Denim Days

18 Mar

Denim is always trendy but even more so this year. I tried the denim on denim look with a dress and boots. 

I like that the dress is not fitted. The tie detail in the front gives it some visual interest so that it doesn’t look like a potato sack. I also like the that it has pockets. 

Dress: American Eagle

Boots: Uggs via Nordstrom

Jewelry: Macy’s 

  

  

Orange Crush

3 Jun

So I was walking back from Starbucks minding my own business when I spotted this beauty in the window of Niche Boutique. I had no plans on shopping as I was on break and headed back to work. However, I couldn’t resist.

Niche only gets a few sizes in of a particular item and they sell fast and thus I decided to make my move.

I tried her on and was in love. The bright orange compliments my rich brown skin beautifully.

I’m going to pair it with turquoise accessories. I’m thinking a nice big, chunky statement necklace. To tone it down and make it more sophisticated, a pair of nude heels will round out the look.

In the Navy

23 May

Navy is such a luxe, classic color.  It pairs well with most everything.  However, it is hard to find, especially in shoes! I was smitten when I saw this lovely Rachel Roy pleated chain dress for $109. Unfortunately, this model does not do the dress justice!

I plan to have it shortened a wee bit because I have short legs.  I tried it on at Macy’s and they did not have the XS that I needed.  This dress runs on the large size.  I plan to order it today so that I can have it in time for my fiance’s birthday in mid June.  I love the low, pleated back!  I think I might style this with some gold strappy sandals to play up on the gold chain halter.

Whatever I do, I will definitely post pics!

I Want This!

I am swooning over this Mark Fast creation!  I first saw it on Marisa Miller who is on February’s cover of Shape.  

Is this just not adorable and doable for $310?!!! If only I can locate it!

How Do I Look?

I found this heart themed number at H&M for $19.99. I’m still undecided though. I don’t know if I like the ruching and the poofy action in the hip area. What do you think?
